Abstract

This study intends to find out whether gender, proficiency level, and social power of interlocutor influence the realization of English requests by Indonesian EFL learners. Twenty students (aged 16-17) that use English as a means of communication at school were involved in this study. They were asked to do role plays of four situations which frequently occur at school context. The requests used were then analyzed with Takahashi’s request strategy types (1996). The results show that (1) male and female participants used different requests strategy types, (2) higher proficiency level participants used different request strategy types compared to participants with lower proficiency level, (3) Indonesian EFL learners used different request strategy types when they talk to interlocutor with higher social power.
